Investment from government for county’s roads

The government has announced further funding which will benefit roads in Peterborough and across the county.

Both Cambridgeshire and Peterborough have received the maximum amount of additional road maintenance funding from the Department for Transport. This funding means £3.1m (£2.5m for Cambridgeshire County Council and £580k for Peterborough City Council) has been awarded to both the county and city councils in recognition for making the best use of funds available and prioritising the needs of the public.

This year (2019-20), Cambridgeshire and Peterborough have also received funding totalling £990k to help prevent and fix potholes.

Andy Tatt, Head of Peterborough Highway Services, said: “We welcome this funding from the government which will help us keep our roads in good condition.

“Our roads are important to us and we are listening to people by spending more money on repairing and resurfacing our roads in Peterborough. We will also combine this with our specialist machines, known as the ‘dragon patcher’ so we continue our battle on potholes. We also use prevention methods such as surface treatments throughout the spring and summer to seal the road and help prevent potholes forming in the first place."

In order to keep our roads maintained, people need to help us by coming forward and reporting them using our online tool.
